This posting has been giving me technical difficulties tonight. I am hoping after trying to post for the 6th time, it will work.
We had a fantastic weekend of sunscreen, french fries, highway miles and bathing suits. After completing our week at Vacation Bible School we headed down to the coast where Mr. Robinson was fishing in a tournament.
Okay, so it wasn’t exactly that easy.
It involved dismissing 38 preschoolers from VBS, trying quickly find a fast food drive through to feed my “starving” whining kids at 12:45, rushing home to pack for the kids, load the car, then rushing to Britton’s 2:00 play of “Mary Poppins” on Friday, coordinating what to do with Poochie (to save a trip back to our house after the show).
Once we went back to Meme’s house to get Poochie, we headed towards the coast only to get stuck in a thundershower. Immediately after I turned the windshield wipers on high, both girls had to go to the bathroom (the beating rain didn’t help perhaps).
So we pull into the small town Wal-mart, crack the windows for the Poochie to make a quick mad dash to the ladies room and grab a frozen pizza for dinner (sorry Mom). As we were “quickly, girls hurry”-ing unloading, my wallet fell out of my purse and landed in a nasty mudpuddle in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
Are you kidding me?
We eventually made our way to the coast and all the little mishaps were long forgotten.
With the absence of television and the Wii at the coast, the girls pulled out an old box of Lincoln Logs (in the original 1977 box I might add). Not once did I hear an “I’m bored” or “Wish we had TV”.
Kenley asked me if she could put on some “chew-ree” this afternoon- and soon spotted my old glasses. I knew I had a small face and the fact that my frames fit my 4 year old great proves this.
And if that wasn’t enough spunk for ya- here’s a little more umphh.
On Saturday- K learned to swim!! A big pool all to ourselves, and hugh steps to practice on made all the diference. That girl has a set of lungs- its scary how long she can hold her breath. It helped to have big sister help coaching.
